Providing students of modest economic means with a college preparatory education aimed at helping young men and women develop the habits of mind and spirit that will enable them to be successful in college, in their careers, and in life.

Providing meaningful opportunities for professionals to interact with and mentor students while making a difference in their lives. Over 100 Cleveland-area businesses, firms, and non-profits have partnered with Saint Martin.

Saint Martin invites students into our school community who are committed to academic, spiritual, social, emotional, and physical growth. During the admissions process, Saint Martin reviews academic, disciplinary, and attendance records, as well as teacher recommendations.

While we are serious about preparing students for college and career success, we also believe that school should be fun! Caring for the whole student, we believe that involvement in extracurriculars is essential to continuing to form talented, well-rounded, and interesting individuals.

Department of Counseling & Social Work

Our goal is to provide a consistent place of support for our students while helping them to develop the skills necessary for effectively navigating any social, emotional, or environmental challenges that may stand in the way of their future success.

We work as advocates for students and serve as a connection point between families, faculty, administration, and outside service providers.  

We believe in building up our students’ abilities as effective problem-solvers, while also working to develop targeted plans to meet their needs while they develop these skills.  

We believe that investing in the whole student (their identity, self-regard, relationships, and mental, emotional, and spiritual health) is a foundational part of their time here and promoting their future success.
